Zermatt, Gornergrat 3090m/10,160ft - Winter/spring panorama

This is the magic view which greats visitors to Gornergrat, although photography cannot do the awesome scale and beauty of these mountains justice. The view from Gornergrat is truly one of the most magnificent mountain panoramas in the world.
Gornergrat is easily accessible from Zermatt in 45 minutes in a spectacular mountain train ride. If the views aren't enough, superb ski runs begin from here and terrific walks in summer.
